Would I cook it more like an apple pie? Just assemble and bake at 350 for 25min?

That's what I would do. I've made this one: http://www.food52.com/recipes...
and just baked it like an apple pie.

sorry, this is probably too late. I don't prebake my bottom crusts. I usually start my pies at 425 for about 15 min, then reduce temp to 375 or so until done.

I have never prebaked the bottom crust of a double crust pie. I am curious to ask the other cooks; how do you seal the edges if the bottom shell is already baked??

As long as the pastry is cold and the oven is hot, I can't see a problem with not prebaking.

Thanks everyone. We did cook it like a 'apple pie' and it was perfect. We did think about sealing (or not being able to seal) the edges with a baked bottom. That was the aha moment!
